We eat breafast here every Sunday. Holly the owner is fastidious and kind. Menu is reliable breakfast and lunch standbys. Food is always well prepared. Special requests accepted. Best diner type establishment I have ever been to

“Good Food,”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

I've been here twice in the past month and feel kind of bad for giving only 2 stars, but the service this time was so ridiculous i can't give them 3 stars.

The first time we were there for breakfast our server was kind and experienced. No complaints. This time, however, we had a different waitress...older lady, I suspect she might be an owner? She was so completely indifferent and unresponsive to us i really just wanted to walk out. She wasn't busy, only 3 other people in the entire place.

So here is how it went.... we sat down and she approached. We said "hello, how are you?" She said "do you want coffee?" No greeting, nothing. When she brought our food we said "Thank You". She just dropped the food and left. Who behaves like that when they rely on tips? Anyway, the food is good which is why i intend to go back... but you can be sure that if she is the only on waitressing, i'll turn right around and go elsewhere. If this lady is the owner, she needs to step back and let someone else serve her customers. If she is hired help, she needs to be re-trained in customer service.
